    Greetings, I Darkstar wish to know what the public thinks of Punk music? I being a long time listener and member of a Punk band wish to spread the glory of Punk in its entirty. Now to the survey, Simply post your favorite punk band, I will then calculate all answers and determine the victor. There is no prize, but I can give you advice on which bands are the best. Have fun!

  2. superguy Helpful CPA Member MAGICBOY

    My favourite is Offspring.
  3. Sammy Dead-O wasting away again

    Currently, I'd say the Bouncing Souls.

    Of all time, my favorite is probably Operation Ivy. I play in a ska band, Darkstar. Where are you located?

    EDIT: Ah, I see...Kentucky...I'm in Georgia. You're not touring through Georgia, are you?

    Sammy: Not anytime soon, at least I think. Nah I just started playing in SR, about two weeks ago, their Lead guitarist & singer quit, and i squaked in. Ska really? I like ska, Sublime, Gwen Stefani ( and her awesome bod), Goldfinger, ect. Ya, and your right, Operation Ivy is awesome. Thx for the post, ill add ya to my buddy list and maybey we can chat sometime.

    Superguy: Offspring has great talent, thx for the vote.

  7. Ura Feline Lord of the Pit

    offspring
  9. Mundungu grumpier than ever

    Geeze, maybe it is because I am too old but I would certainly not count offspring as a "punk" band.

    For me "Punk" is Sex Pistols or the "The damned"
  10. Darkstar An Entire Marching Band

    I like your old skool spirit guys. Surprised some one hasnt said Ramones or Misfits yet? And yes, it is true that offspring do carry Pop-punk charisma in their music. sry :(

    nofx or ramons hehehe
  12. Istanbul Sucker MCs call me sire.

    I'm with Mundungu on this one. Offspring is punk? Somehow, that doesn't seem right.
  13. TURD CUTTER!!! Mr. Happy

    The original is usually the best, and in this case, it is.
  14. Darkstar An Entire Marching Band

    Ill just put you down for... Bad Religion.

    Warning: May not be appropriate for everyone. Sorry if you're offended, it's just a joke.

    Joe the Punk comes out of the punk rock show, drunk and stoned out of his mind, and decides to pass out right there on the street, in the dumpster. He wakes up, flies circling around his head, and after smoking up again, decides to take a dump. While doing that and looking for something to read, he finds a newspaper with this ad in there:

    "New Punk club opening on Main street very soon, only the most elite and true punks can come! To prove that you're a real punk, write us a letter explaining why."

    Joe decides that it's definitely for him, and writes the following letter:

    "Hi, my name is Joe and I'm a REAL, TRUE punk. I only listen to NoFX, Sex Pistols, and other tr00 bands. I smoke weed and drink every day, I never shave or wash my clothes,I never had a job, I dropped out of school after 5th grade and I smell really bad. I don't give a crap about anything in this life, and your club in particular. In fact, I'm taking a dump right now and I'm about to wipe my ass with this letter."

    So he does that, puts the letter in the envelope and sends it to the club. A week later, he gets the reply:

    "Dear Joe, sorry but we can't let you in our club because you're not a REAL, TRUE punk. Real punks don't wipe their ass."

    :D

    These guys have been thrown into every hotdamn catagory except for "Country Music."

    I'll throw my vote in for, as usual,
